Expanding abbreviations in tool tip (pop-up hints)

When a column is resized such that displayed text gets truncated (shows elipsis ...), is it possible to hover the mouse over the item to display the full text in a tool tip?

Anything is possible, it depends on your skill set in JS and AW. I don't have time to provide an example. Sorry.

Try to set the tooltip of each cell to the value of the cell and see what happens. It would be good to know what the limits are of tooltips.

Tony - then why bother responding to my question?
Jim - OK that was kind of my question - how to do that - I guess I just need to dig into the code to figure out how to do that. I'm just evaluating the thing, so it's not like I have this all in my head, since I didn't create it. Are there docs for 2.0?

In the download there are two folders, one called EXAMPLES and one called QUICKREF. Plenty of examples in there wil documented code. And there are examples in the code to show you how to set up tooltips. There are examples of how to set the value of the cell content. Merge the two and you should be able to put cell content into each cells tooltip. I have not needed to do it so I have not worked out the details, sorry.

Kwooda, I appologize for my last response didn't want to sound rude if I did, I just have never used them but I know it's possible and didn't have time to try and do an example for you. Anyhow it bumps up your post so gives you more of a chance for people to see/respond to it. That was my main reason for giving your post a minute of my time.
